Like so many others, I needed to pause and reflect on the woman, her work and her thoughts on these times.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a champion of gender equality, leader of human rights and a national treasure died over the weekend. She was 87 and left a legacy that greatly impacted the lives of millions of people.
The New York Times produced a beautiful video of her life and work. View it here.
Three of my favorite quotes by Justice Ginsburg:
“Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.”
ON SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY::
“One thing that I did feel in law school was that if I flubbed, that I would be bringing down my entire sex. That you weren’t just failing for yourself, but people would say, ‘Well, I did expect it of a woman.’ … I was determined not to leave that impression.”
“If you have a caring life partner, you help the other person when that person needs it. I had a life partner who thought my work was as important as his, and I think that made all the difference for me.”
If you have a minute to pause and reflect on her tireless efforts, please embrace the sentiment.
Go for Bold.
This is where we highlight champions, doing the good work- the right work.
Thank you to Justice Bader Ruth Ginsburg or The Notorious BRG as pop culture coined her for 50+ years of service. She was the second woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. We are mighty proud to have had her leadership.
